Southeastern revives military organization

The Southeastern Student Veteran and Military Interest Association is offered to military science cadets, veterans and families of veterans. The first meeting for the group was held on Thursday Sept. 22, at 5:30p.m. in the student union room 2215

The Southeastern Student Veteran and Military Interest Association offers a place where the military community can enjoy a sense of comradery, gain education about their benefits and feel a part of a community.  Southeastern freshman Nicole Bailey and Ashley Curry  made it their mission to make the group active again.  

The group became inactive approximately six years ago due to lack of military personnel holding officer positions.  Bailey, president of The Southeastern Student Veteran and Military Interest Association, worked with Curry to have the bylaws changed, allowing veterans or family members to hold positions in office.

The military community have benefits they are entitled to but have a hard time getting direct answers about how to receive them. The Southeastern Student Veteran and Military Interest Association hopes to bridge the gap in communication by hosting information sessions for members in regards to accessing all of the benefits they are entitled to.

Bailey said “We pushed for this group to get started again to give the military community a sense of belonging.”
